This week has been very busy at work and home. As mentioned in previous posts, the kids are back to school. Normally, I’d be back to school myself at this time, fixing up my classroom and organizing for the start of another great year. August is my busiest month. Since my job this fall is to stay home and recover from surgeries, my role at my real job has dramatically changed. I spent the day today completing a technology training that involved a scavenger hunt and helping the teacher who would have been my kindergarten team member get her classroom ready. She and her assistant are both new to the kindergarten level, so helping her get settled and establish her brand new classroom has been a top priority. I did bail on her for the year, after all, so I take the blame for leaving her to fend for herself, so to speak.
WOrk on healing
As a result of all of this activity, I came home absolutely exhausted. In fact, I took a nap. People, I don’t nap, or at least, I didn’t before my LAVH. I’d only nap if I was sick. Well, I guess that confirms that my body is still healing if I’m still wanting to nap. So, here I am, post-nap and only wanting to sleep more! Pitiful. The kids are home, however, so sleeping is truly impossible. Instead I’m enjoying a cup of tea on this rainy day. I was too lazy to make coffee.
What do you do when you’re tired?
What do you like to do when you’re feeling lazy? My go-to activity is reading. I love a good book. Today, I’m recommending a book that’s got me hooked: Ms. Peregrine’s School for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. The only problem with this book is that I can’t put it down, which can, at times, keep me up later than desired even when I’m tired! Don’t spoil the book by commenting because I’m not done with it yet! I want the book to just keep going. Ever feel that? I want to plow through but I can’t bear the thought of it ending.
I plan to post frequently with book recommendations. My reality is resting is the road to recovery. Healing is a lot of work.
